I just picked up one of these at a swap meet this morning. I remember seeing it on Hobby Lobby's website for years but never pulled the trigger.

Any tips you can share with me during your build? Do you have other photos? Specifically your motor mounts and battery compartment. Did the elevator pushrod work smoothly?

Thanks!
